Virginia CZM Program Public Notices

The Virginia CZM Program is a networked program of state agencies and local governments (authorized by Executive Order 35).  This network administers the enforceable laws and regulations that protect our wetlands, dunes, subaqueous lands, fisheries, and air and water quality. To maintain an effective network, Virginia's CZM Program is periodically updated to reflect changes made to coastal law and regulation.  This process of updating the program, if it is significant change, is referred to a Program Amendment. If it is a less significant change, it is referred to as a Routine Program Change (RPC).

Because the laws and regulations incorporated into the Virginia CZM Program are used for Federal Consistency determinations, this process is a crucial part of maintaining a strong Program and state agency participation in this RPC process is essential. Incorporated programs are also eligible to receive funding support through a Virginia CZM Program grant. 

Public notice is a very important part of the routine program change process and this process generates most of the public notices issued by the Virginia CZM Program.
